Hail, Caesar! is an upcoming comedy film written, produced, and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. The film is set to star Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, and Ralph Fiennes. Hail, Caesar! follows Eddie Mannix (Brolin), a fixer working in the Hollywood film industry in the 1950s, trying to discover what happened to a cast member who vanishes during filming.

First revealed in 2004, the film was originally set to take place in the 1920s and follow actors performing a play about ancient Rome. The Coens shelved the idea until late 2013, when they stated it was in development. The project was confirmed to be in development in May 2014. Principal photography began in November 2014 in Los Angeles, California. The film is scheduled to be released on February 5, 2016.

Synopsis

À Hollywood, dans les années 1950, Eddie Mannix travaille durement à la production pour le célèbre studio américain Capitol Pictures. Il officie également comme fixeur, sa pire activité : en l'espace d'une journée, il va devoir régler les problèmes en tout genre des stars, ainsi que retrouver la plus grosse star du studio, Baird Whitlock, qui a disparu en plein tournage du péplum Hail, Caesar !, kidnappé par un groupe de militants communistes. Il gère à la fois plein de petits tracas : le réalisateur exigeant Laurence Laurentz, qui n’apprécie guère qu’on lui ait attribué le jeune espoir du western comme tête d’affiche de son prochain drame psychologique ; les rivalités entre deux chroniqueuses ennemies qui sont également des sœurs jumelles ; la réputation de l'actrice DeeAnna Moran la reine du ballet nautique... Eddie Mannix sort ainsi ces acteurs du pétrin où ces derniers tombent avec facilité, mais doit aussi gérer en parallèle sa vie de famille ainsi que la société Lockheed qui souhaite l'engager. Une journée qui s'annonce mouvementée et pénible pour Eddie Mannix.

In 1941, Barton Fink's first Broadway play, Bare Ruined Choirs, has achieved critical and popular success. His agent informs him that Capitol Pictures in Hollywood has offered him a thousand dollars per week to write film scripts. Barton hesitates, worried that moving to California would separate him from "the common man", his focus as a writer. He accepts the offer, however, and checks into the Hotel Earle, a large and unusually deserted building. His room is sparse and draped in subdued colors; its only decoration is a small painting of a woman on the beach, arm raised to block the sun.

In 1959, Alfred Hitchcock opens his latest film, North by Northwest, to considerable success, but is troubled by a reporter's insinuation that it is time to retire. Seeking to reclaim the artistic daring of his youth, Hitchcock turns down film proposals like adapting Casino Royale in favor of a horror novel called Psycho by Robert Bloch, which is based on the crimes of murderer Ed Gein. Gein appears in sequences throughout the film in which he seems to prompt Hitchcock's imagination regarding the Psycho story, or act as some function of Hitchcock's subconscious mind (for instance, drawing Hitchcock's attention to sand on his bathroom floor, the quantity of which reveals how much time his wife Alma has been spending at the beachhouse with Whitfield Cook).
